A Tradition of Excellence

Our Tradition of Excellence in the US and World

Why do parents send their children to New Hope Lutheran Academy? Parents send their children to New Hope for many different reasons. One of the reasons is because we are a part of one of the largest private school systems in the country. We are not a random private school without any history that our church decided to start to help the community. We are a proud member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS is deeply committed to offering an education while teaching, correcting, encouraging, and redirecting students with the teachings of the Bible.

The WELS has a rich tradition of academic excellence, ranging from preschool through college. With thanks to God, we proudly proclaim we are one of the largest private school systems in the United States. The WELS has operated highly regarded and world-recognized elementary and middle schools across the world for over 150 years. 

The WELS provides its own teachers and instructors in its schools by training them at their own colleges since 1884.

It is gratifying to report that on average, students enrolled in WELS schools tend to annually outperform their peers by a considerable margin on national achievement tests. Not only this, but our students are routinely able to apply into some of the best high schools in their communities and best colleges and universities in the United States. We humbly thank God for his gracious blessings upon our schools.

New Hope Lutheran Academy is proud to strive to continue this rich tradition of academic excellence for the upcoming school year. If you haven’t already, please take time to visit with Principal Haag to find out more about the blessings that New Hope has to offer.

About New Hope Lutheran Academy

Founded in 2004, New Hope Lutheran Academy is a private elementary Christian school located in the heart of West Melbourne, Florida. Our Christian school, which teaches students kindergarten through eighth grade, was started and continues to be operated by the members of New Hope Lutheran Church. Our foundation for all aspects of both our Christian church and our Christian school is the Word of God. 


New Hope Lutheran Academy exists to provide a Christ-centered education to the children of our congregation and community. We believe that every child is precious. As such, it is a joy and privilege to serve children in an environment of love that mirrors our Savior’ s love for us. At New Hope, our teachers, staff, and volunteers share this vision. The school is fittingly named New Hope because of the “ new hope” we have in Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus is the Savior of the world, and we share this truth with our students and parents as well. Parents send their children to our Christian school with the knowledge that their children are in a safe educational environment where Christian teachers know their child, their child’ s needs and how to encourage them. 


At New Hope Lutheran Academy, students from kindergarten through eighth grade prepare for the future with Florida standards-based courses that are enriched with Christian teachings and morals. Our small class sizes enable us to truly know our students and help them develop their God-given abilities. Because of our flexible multi-grade classrooms and entrance assessment, we are able to place students into groups of their peers based on ability and proficiency rather than solely on age. This is achieved most notably in reading and math. And most of all, we are able to provide our students with the truth of God's Word, the one changeless thing in an ever-changing world. All of these truths guide us in our mission statement- Preparing Hearts and Minds in Christ through Faith, Academics, and Behavior.
